In the current pandemic, it is more and more important to have a reliable relationship with business partners. This week, Busch Vacuum Solutions
delivered a short-notice assignment to help one of its longtime customers in the medical segment. This customer is specialized in the manufacturing of vacuum and air systems for hospitals. The medical gas equipment manufacturer is considered to be part of a critical infrastructure industry defined by the Department of Homeland Security. Since the capacities of hospitals are being expanded to face the increasing number of Corona patients, its production of such medical systems is rising as well.
Vacuum is required in healthcare facilities to provide proper suction during procedures and care. In very short time, Busch was able to deliver 36 R5 rotary vane vacuum pumps that are needed by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) to deploy new hospital trailers with Intensive Care Unit (ICU) beds in the field.
The Busch team in the US stepped up to help rush through the ordering, production and shipping process of these critical vacuum units. They will be built into trailers, that will be deployed to multiple locations. Wherever needed, they will be used as emergency supply for patients all over the country. And with the highest number of infected people worldwide, these vacuum units for hospitals are urgently needed in the US.

Busch Vacuum Solutions
was founded by Dr.-Ing. Karl Busch and his wife Ayhan Busch in 1963. Dr.-Ing. Karl Busch developed the “HUCKEPACK”, which was the first vacuum pump that could be used for vacuum packaging of foodstuffs. The follow-up product, the compact “R5” rotary vane vacuum pump, revolutionized food packaging. A further milestone represented the development of the “COBRA” screw vacuum pump. In 1971 the international expansion of the Busch group started with the founding of a sales company in the UK. The first production plant outside Germany was established in the USA in 1979.
